Have you ever made a vest for a Halloween costume? Well neither had I. When your grandson needs a vest to complete his Woody character from Toy Story, what does one do? They come up with a little Nana ingenuity.
A random 101 Dalmatian costume from Halloween's gone by, hanging on the thrift store rack was calling out my name the minute I walked through the door. The thing with me and a piece of fabric or article of clothing, I can transform it in my mind into something totally repurposed and wonderful. The tricky part is actually making the dream a reality.
My goal was to do it first thing this morning, and about an hour later I had produced something that would pass for a Woody vest. I had Teddy model it for you, but I think it clashes with his fur. At any rate, I probably won't be entering any sewing competitions with it but it surpassed my grandson's expectations (and his mother). I was delighted to hear the excitement in his little voice when he saw it for the first time and tried it on. This was definitely the top blessing of the day and will be recorded as such in my blessings journal.
Although, I don't consider myself aged (I'm a young nana), I like this scripture. Children's children are a crown to the aged. Proverbs 17:6a. Thanks for stopping by.
